Re: IPP -> PNG batch conversion

Hello Joe, The file format is binary, an object structure with DIBs (device-independent bitmaps) and everything is LZH compressed. We will keep Impict available as a separate free program and Help+Manual will always be able to read IPP files and convert them. So there is no reason to manually conver...

Re: IPP -> PNG batch conversion

Hello Joe,

The easiest way to batch-convert IPP images to PNG is to create a new project with Help+Manual and place the IPP images in a topic. H&M will convert them to PNG in the output. The ImpictPreviewHandler.dll never went live, it was not properly working, unfortunately.

Re: Command-line option for generating help context file

Hi Ross, If you produce the help project from a batch file, why not include the help context numbers directly into the project XML? I don't really see what a command line option for the help context tool could do here. The help context list is stored in the .HMXP file. You find it in: <helpproject> ...

Re: Random crash on startup

This happens at application initialization, way too early even for a startup log. That's why you get a plain error message, and no bug report. Can you try to copy the Help+Manual installation folder to a new place and start HELPMAN.EXE from that folder? You can simply copy the entire installation fo...

Re: Random crash on startup

Hello Ross,

Is Help+Manual locally installed or is it a server version? If the failures are occasional, it could be a network problem. The file reported is a DLL that is used by the main application. It implements the syntax highlighter for code examples.

Re: Output to Word -- Keywords

Turning Datei --> Optionen --> Anzeige --> "Ausgeblendeten Text" OFF does the trick. Is there any particular reason why they are output in the first place? That's the right option. It is normally "OFF", so most people don't see the markers anyway. The keyword markers are output ...

Re: Output to Word -- Keywords

Hi John, The keyword is just an invisible marker and it is placed right next to the topic title, because that's where the keyword points to. You can ignore the keyword markers - they won't have any effect unless the document has a keyword index. Tip: you are seeing the keyword markers because Word s...

Re: Contents of CHM looks weird when using Delphi 10.3 skins

Hi Olivier, I am not sure about the 10.3 skins in Delphi and how they work. I haven't seen this problem with Developer Express skins, for instance. But I know of other 3rd party skins that influence the UI of the help window, if invoked. It most probably has to do with the way the help file gets inv...

Re: Cannot edit the style of hmskin file

Hi David, The text styles in HTML skins were unfortunate in older versions of Help+Manual. I am not sure if styles from skins were applied in version 6, but in version 7 they definitely had no (more) function. Consequently, we disabled style editing in skins. A better place for global styles are res...

Re: Italian spelling checker dict-it.oxt doesn't work

Hi Bruno, Thank you for reporting this! This dictionary has an unusual folder structure. This structure in combination with a bug in the dictionary parser caused the spell check failure.
